Spirit cancels flight to Santo Domingo due to “bad weather” and leaves passengers stranded
Hundreds of locals and tourists were left stranded at the airport in Orlando, Florida, after US airline Spirit Airlines canceled its flight to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, citing bad weather conditions. The cancellation notification was given just minutes before boarding was scheduled to take place at 9:10 p.m., leaving passengers without alternative options.
One of the affected passengers, Wendy Mora, a Dominican communicator, had her flight, Spirit Flight NK 1567, rescheduled for the following day without any compensation for additional expenses. Similar situations were faced by other travelers, although some opted to purchase tickets on alternative airlines in the hope that Spirit Airlines would reimburse the cost of their canceled flights.
Spirit Airlines is an American low-cost airline based in Miramar, Florida, operating scheduled flights primarily within the United States and Latin America.
